economist. virginia collected $57 million. tummy but the proposal by chuck hagel in his defense proposed budget. >> i take three things away. for the next fiscal year, for the next calendar year, i am concerned that he has put forward starting a debate around some of the pay, retirements, tri-care, commissaries, and what is so challenging about that, it would appear that if somehow they are getting singled out ahead of the rest of us and we have not been willing to take on the more major entitlement reforms that i think the country desperately needs. from a virginia standpoint. even if they are not taking major cuts this year when the dreaded sequestration comes back in fiscal year 16, all of these things will be up for grabs. it reinforces the issue that i think is the most important issue we have to still grapple with. we have continued to kick the can on the need for the grand bargain or the gang of six or simpson bowles. frankly, we haven't done that yet and we will see with sequestration cuts coming back in place that if we don't do that, such is the jerk on the ciccone in nature wh

. there are a number of regularly scheduled u.s. navy deployments into the black sea. chuck hagel is going to have to decide does he recommend those go forward or recommend the u.s. navy pull back. it is interesting to see what side they go down on. there are options in the military category, for instance, sending ships to the area. that is something that they did there as a signal, i remember at the time as well. that president bush sent humanitarian aid to the capitol at the time. they were military plane s guessing that russian troops. is it correct to say there were no military options on the table when it seems there were steps to take to send a strong message? >> there may be no military operations but there are things in the military category. it is going to come up in days now. the deployments are scheduled by the navy and the u.s. marine core. do they put a u.s. presence in that region as planned before all of this happened? what message do they want to send? but it is coming at another awkward time for chuck hagel because he is going to be out in public talking about why the u.s. can cut

to today's big news about the war and the end of the war. this is defense secretary chuck hagel. this is him last october in brussels at nato headquarters. he was there meeting with all the other people who have his same job and all the other nato countries. it was the meeting of the nato defense ministers. at that meeting late last year, defense secretary chuck hagel told all the other defense secretaries in nato that by the next time they all got together, the u.s. and afghanistan would likely have signed a deal to arrange for some number of u.s. troops to stay on in afghanistan even after the nominal end of the war this year. he told the other defense ministers when we next meet in february, we expect that by then the president of afghanistan will have signed this deal. well, that next meeting in february is tomorrow. tomorrow chuck hagel is meeting again with all of those other defense ministers from all the other nato countries. the next meeting is tomorrow and the president of afghanistan has not signed that deal even though the u.s. had told those defense ministers we exp
, and no doubt that chuck hagel would have to expect tough scrutiny over it. >> yes, chuck hagel as well as the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff are getting a lot of tough questions, but the two men are arguing that the current fiscal realities in the federal government require that the military cut as much as a trillion dollars in the next ten years in defense spending, and they also note with the end of the war coming in afghanistan that this is a prime moment for the military to essentially reorganize itself. however, it's very controversial because every one of the 50 states in the u.s. depends on military spending as part of its economy, and hundreds of millions of people in some way have some sort of benefit that comes from defense spending, whether it's a job, whether it's retirement benefits, whether it's healthcare, it's a very controversial proposal. >> apart from all of these points that you just pointed out, as to how it is going to effect americans, what about the u.s. military's readiness, or the ability to fight wars? how is this budget going to effect that? >> what t

included john kerry, chuck hagel, and susan rice. earlier today the president was carefully restrained in his public assessment of the situation. >> the facts on the ground in crimea are deeply troubling. and russia has a large army that borders ukraine. but what is also true is that over time this will be a costly proposition for russia. and now is the time for them to consider whether they can serve their interests in a way that resorts to diplomacy as opposed to force. >> the president wisely left the tough talk to his foreign policy team. >> you cannot behave this way in the 21st century and sit around the table of the normal entities and pretend that life is as usual. it is not going to be as usual. if russia wants to be a g8 country it needs to behave like a g8 country. he is not going to have a sochi g8. he may not even remain in the g8 if this continues. he may find himself with asset freezes on russian business, american business may pull back. there may be a further tumble of the ruble. there's a huge price to pay. the united states is united. russia is isolated. that is not

by the administration to gut america's military is bringing concern. chuck hagel brought a proposal to shrink the army to pre-wwii size. the cuts were dangerous, devastating and over the top. he also slammed president obama for the decision. >> i think the whole thing is not driven by any change or circumstance. it's driven by budget cut considerations. he'd much rather spend the money on food stamps than he would the military or support for our troops. >> back with more is ralph peters. also with us, co-host of the 5 about bob beckel. preworld war ii, 78 years, really? is this dangerous for our men and women in uniform? >> well, basically, this is a political budget. it's not a military or strategic budget. and to that end, it cuts muscle to preserve fat. it punishes the troops to reward fat cat defense contractors who sell the taxpayers -- i'm getting a little tired of hearing that inaccurate comment about going back to preworld war ii levels in 1940. it's worse than that. if we go back to the 440 -- or 450,000 troops we had in 1940. in 1940, an infantry division had a much smaller tail. less overhe
, let's get right to defense secretary chuck hagel because there is an extraordinary optic out there. earlier today at nato headquarters in brussels secretary hagel issued a warning to moscow. and how many years has it been since a u.s. defense secretary had to do that? i want you to listen to what he had to say. >> i'm closely watching russia's military exercises along the ukrainian border, which they announced as you know yesterday. i expect russia to be transparent about these activities. and i urge them not to take any steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to m miscalculation during a very delicate time, a time of great tension. >> a direct warning from the u.s. to the russian military. so what is going on along that border? well, russian forces now on alert conducting those exercises. the big worry, wolf, is as they move closer to that border with ukraine, as they move around and exercise and train, if that is indeed what they are doing, they get closer to the border if, if, they were to get orders to move into ukraine. they are that much closer, they could move very quickl

, karen, we saw defense secretary chuck hagel leaving the wours early and dni chief james clapper as well as other officials. this comes on a very stern warning yesterday. he said to russia if they were to take military steps in ukraine, that there would be costs associated with that. so the big question is what will those costs be? what are they considering? one white house official telling nbc news that those costs could include a possible boycott of the g-8 summit. that is slated to happen in sochi, russia, the very same place where the olympics were held in june. >> presumably i'm assuming the white house is weighing those options given there may be action at the u.n. security council or they think that's doubtful, but as they also keep app eye an eye on what is happening in the ukraine and essentially what putin does next. >> reporter: they are weighing their options very carefully, you're absolutely right. the question is will there be more that they're putting on the table in addition to the potential boycott of the g-8 summit. i can tell you they are getting pressure from some of
such as sexual assault, drunk driving and child abuse. the army went further than chuck hagel's orders and disqualified 588 in total. in a statement the army says: kimberley hank said she assaulted by kill kerr son in italy. >> will kerr son's boss dismissed the verdict as military rules allowed and set him free. the figures on sexual assault in the military make for grim reading. there are 19,000 sexual assaults a year, of which 3,000 are reported and 1500 considered accessible. a panel on capitol hill explored the relationship between sexual assaults in the military, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide. hearing that many victims are afraid to ask for help for fear of being ashamed and ridiculed. >> i ask for us to stand together and take proactive steps. >> i had to google what to do. >> advocates want reforms that end the rights of commanders to overturn court-martial verdict. >> the military system is based on the discretion of a single commander over the rule of law. until you remove the bias and conflict of interest outside the chain of command, you'll never have justice.
over the next couple of hours. defense secretary chuck hagel, chairman of the joint chief, head of c.i.a. and national security were seen leaving the white house this afternoon. last night president obama did issue a warning to russia. >> obama: the united states will stand with the international community in affirming there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. >> note that use of the word international community. we are seeing more responses come from that international body. we saw the e.u. come out today and say ukraine's sovereignty should be respected, also the head of n.a.t.o. the white house looking to garner support, and really isolate russia, make it the unified world body, the collective against russia. but the white house has to be very careful about what happens next. because we're essentially in a tit for tat. as the white house calculates its next move it needs to think about how it will proceed and how president putin will react. we are seeing other reactions hire in washington including from republican center john mccain, he put out a statement toda
you tell us what is happening in washington now? >> the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, had a conversation with his russian counterpart today. probably the u.s. is going to condemn any violation of ukrainian serenity. there is no new reaction from president obama yet written as you just mentioned, he said yesterday that there would be costs for any military intervention. he did not say exactly what he meant by that. is he not going to the next g8 summit to russia? is he going to stop trade negotiations or talks with the kremlin? what we see right now are many meetings in the west wing of the white house and the state department. >> he warned russian aunties force. the parliament approved the use of force. what kind of leverage does president obama have in the situation? >> the former ambassador to the united nations, the former american ambassador, said just a couple of hours ago that the u.s. does not have any strong leverage in this. russia has boots on the ground. ukraine is not a member of nato. i think washington does not have any sort of leverage in moscow. but they ha

of defense chuck hagel, secretary of state john kerry and susan rice were in the meeting. secretary of state john kerry boarded a plane at andrew's air force base, headed to kiev to meet with the interim government on tuesday. kerry's trip coming as russia shows no signs of backing off from crimea. they received a deadline to lay down arms or face a full-scale assault. russia de nice making that call. they say they were invited by president viktor yanukovych. nick schifrin is in the crimean peninsula with the latest. >> this is a ukrainian base on ukrainian land. those are not ukrainian soldiers or that's not a ukrainian flag. the welcoming committee doesn't pledge allegiance to ukraine. >>. translation: we are here to support the russian peacekeepers. they are the only means to stop the violence in ukraine. >> in this area the russian occupation is growing and the resistance seems non-existent. the russian soldiers occupied the base without firing a shot. visitors brought sandwiches and a teapot. soldiers relax and ate in crudely fortified positions. they brought 50 calibre machine-gun, and
, chuck hagel and so -- and william hague. and there's only so much diplomacy. the headlines of the day that come out of the french capital inevitably will be about ukraine. >> you mentioned at the top there that the foreign ministers from - several foreign ministers meeting, sergei lavrov, and the u.s. secretary of state john kerry. there are other meetings as well on the sidelines of this. you talked about the lebanese officials as well. there'll be time for events in syria to be addressed also, presumably. >> yes, they'll certainly be addressed, and there would have been a summit meeting in paris anyway if the ukrainian crisis had not happened. it's important to emphasise that. president suleman from lebanon is here. the original idea was a confrontation on ways to bolster the army. an offer of some $3 billion going in to bolstering the army, supplying them with french weaponry, trying to resist pressure, certainly the west would like in lebanon to worson. at the end of the day we will talk about ukraine here in paris, and we are going to get some good indications. we know that the i
is high it is never too high. whatever it costs to defend our country we will pay. >> and then chuck hagel said this week, yeah, we probably are not going to be the most dominant force on planet earth anymore. >> it makes me very uncomfortable. i'm a big defense kind of person, america can do a lot. think what happened yesterday. the president of the united states had his republican secretary of defense, be the e one, to cover, the draw down troops in america. guess what they did today? i notice big infrastructure spending, who does it benefit, sean? anybody? >> unions? >> it is a contrast. and the president is showing what his priorities are and america made a choice and now we're going to have to make another one in 2014. >> let's face it, america is in retreat all over the world. this president does not wish to exercise power anywhere in the world. we're in retreat. so he shrinks the military to fit that new diminished role. >> wouldn't that void be filled by -- >> by who? >> iran, who is interested in expanding its borders. >> china? >> china perhaps. look, we need to think about the
chuck hagel, when he announced we're going to go to preworld war ii troop levels with our army, season the that what he said, we can't expect american dominance in the seas and sky and space any longer, that that is not something we can come to expect any more? season the that their position? and won't that void be filled by someone like vladimir putin or an alliance as we see between putin and china? >> absolutely. think of it. russia has a very modest economy it has a con script military that is not impressive. there's not a military person on the face of the earth that i've met who would think of trading our military for their military. putin is punching so far above his weight class. we don't have a foreign policy, we don't have a strategy. the only -- we don't have supporters, imagine, think back when the president went to congress and tried to get a coalition of other countries with respect to syria. the other countries backed away. and then he went to congress and the members of congress backed away. >> you're basically saying this is accumulation. we can really -- >> absolutely
, chuck hagel, "it's not good enough to say we have a zero-tolerance policy. we do. but what does it mean? how does that translate into changing anything? i want to know. these crimes have no place, no place in the greatest military on earth." we all agree with that, but here's what this shows you. just look at this. one, two, three, four, five, six, seven secretaries of defense, republicans and democrats over all these years, the first one being dick cheney in 1992. they've all promised zero tolerance. and the problem of sexual assault in the military gets worse and worse and worse. so, senator gillibrand has issued a call to action. she's written a terrific bill working with republicans and democrats. and we're getting a vote on that bill tomorrow, assuming we can break a filibuster. because there is a filibuster, and we have to file cloture, and we need a supermajority of 60 in order to get to an up-or-down vote. so, these promises, to me, ring hollow. i like so many of these people. i've worked with so many of them. they're good people. they care. but i've got to tell you, these words

. thank you so much. >> ifill: as defense secretary chuck hagel announced yesterday, the pentagon is grappling with what to keep and what to cut in a time of tight budgets and national security challenges. at the air force, leaders have set their sights on grounding a plane that's been a reliable standby for decades. but it's defenders won't give up without a fight. defense producer dan sagalyn, has been tracking the debate. kwame holman narrates this report. >> reporter: a typical day at martin state airport on maryland's eastern shore includes chemical weapons training with the a-10 warthog. the national guard base is one of the homes of an aircraft beloved by ground forces who see it as their guardian in the sky. its pilots view infantry on the ground as their primary customer, and responsibility. most combat aircraft shoot down other planes or drop bombs or both. but the warthog was designed specifically to come in low and attack enemy forces in a mission called close air support. >> north or south, west of the smoke, west of the smoke. okay copy, west of the smoke i'm lookin
's border. about 150,000 troops are taking part. defense secretary chuck hagel has warned russia the u.s. is keeping a sharp eye on the moves. the concern is that president putin could be planning some sort of a power grab. chief national security correspondent jim sciutto joins us. despite these exercises, troops mobilizing on the border, the obama administration seems confident russia will not be moving troops into ukraine? >> reporter: that's the pentagon's assessment they're not going to act. what's changed in the last 24 hours, because the russians have moved these troops, mobilized these war planes, put them on alert as well, if president putin decided he did want to go in they could poomove so quick u.s. would not have a chance to react to it. that's increased the level of nervousness among administration officials. what would the u.s. do in reaction? we're talking really about only diplomatic means, protests, et cetera. because the supreme nato commander and american general breedlove says europe is not planning certainly any military reaction if the russians were to go in. >>
administration this week is making proposals that would shrink our military. when chuck hagel was nominated to be secretary of defense, i strongly objected based on his record as a senator and some of his comments about our allies in the middle east that absolutely scared the living day lights out of me. my fears, they were not unfounded. as this week hagel proudly announced his proposal to further gut the military readiness of our nation by drausic troop reductions and cuts to our families and family health care. for the past 100 years presidents and our nation's warriors have warned of putting our guard down. both democrat and republican presents from coolidge to roosevelt to eisenhower to reagan reminded us that readiness to fight is the foundation of freedom. the best minds in our nation's history warned of lulling ourselves into the stupid stupor of thinking that the world would be safer and more peaceful if we just holstered our guns and swords. it's folly to think such nonsense. the best way to preserve freedom, keep the peace and protect security is to have a military that's so over
